I only turned it on in the hopes that it'd help. I normally leave that off since 90% of the time it is programmed to only reduce the load, not smooth out the appearance.
With Ys 2 running, I still have 2.7GB of ram available out of 4 GB, tried a fresh boot, tried a safe mode boot. No luck there either though.
I kind of wonder if it might be a multi-core CPU issue, I'll have to try locking it to one core I guess. It is at least the version marked for Vista, so it didn't expect it to have issues? Ys 1 had similar but vastly inconsequential and generally felt non-existant with the framerate. It wasn't until Ys 2 that it became often enough that I actually could tweak it and play with it etc.
